 Biography
Research Interest :

Our studies focus on arachidonic acid (AA) pathway in Kaposi’s sarcoma associated herpes virus (KSHV) pathogenesis. Our previous studies reported the upregulation of prostaglandin pathway’s major stress angiogenic protein cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and its lipid metabolite prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in the endothelial cells strictly displaying viral latency and Body-cavity B-cell lymphoma (BCBL) cells carrying multicopy viral genome. Our studies showed that KSHV induced COX-2/PGE2 play important role in KSHV pathogenesis related events like inflammation, invasion, angiogenesis and cell survival. Using a variety of cutting edge technologies, we are currently deciphering the role of prostaglandin pathway in KSHV episome maintenance and chromatin remodeling. Our research also focuses on the identification of the cellular and viral factors involved in the stability of COX-2 and continuous regulated secretion of PGE2 in KSHV positive lymphoma cells.

bio:Dr. Katherine Smith is a cell and molecular biologist with an interest in virus-cell interactions. Her academic research encompassed cell, developmental, and microbiological fields and employed the use of recombinant DNA techniques, antibody production and use, DNA and RNA analysis and quantification, and animal husbandry.  She successfully cloned two novel genes during the course of her graduate career and engineered numerous mutant DNA constructs. Dr. Smith received her bachelors’ degree in Biology with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and obtained her Ph.D. in Cell Biology at the University of Virginia. After a post-doctorate tenure at the University of Virginia, she worked as a research scientist in the International Technology Assessment division of Battelle Memorial Institute prior to joining Arbovax as a Senior Scientist. At Arbovax, Dr. Smith is working on the production and testing of a novel live-virus vaccine for Dengue fever and other insect-transmitted viruses.

 Biography
Research Interest :

surprising to me that there were still infectious diseases for which there were no treatments. When I learned about Arbovax’s technology and intention to produce a vaccine for the newly re-emerging threat of Dengue Fever, I was immediately on board! In just under four years, we have non-human primate data on a novel Dengue Virus serotype 2 vaccine that looks incredibly promising. With a relatively simple and straight forward design a vaccine candidate was created that yielded very strong neutralizing antibody responses in Green Monkeys, while not generating antibodies that don’t neutralize. This neutralizing vs. non-neutralizing antibody generation is a huge problem in the Dengue field, as non-neutralizing antibodies can lead to a more severe and often fatal form of Dengue Fever, Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever. While we were hoping to see such a phenomenon based on the seminal work on Sindbis Virus, actually generating the result in a primate model was incredibly exciting. Now we hope to apply the same technology to other insect-transmitted viral diseases that currently have no vaccine or treatment.

 Biography
Research Interest :

My laboratory is primarily interested in the construction and analysis of adenovirus vectors for gene therapy. Adenovirus (Ad) offers great promise as a gene therapy vector, but is limited by the strong inflammatory response that is elicited upon introduction of the large amounts of virus necessary to efficiently transduce tissues in vivo. The inflammation appears to be, in part, dependent on the ability of the vector to replicate its DNA to low levels after transduction. Using preterminal protein (pTP)-expressing cell lines that we developed, we have introduced a deletion-mutant allele of the pTP gene into the viral chromosome. Since pTP serves as primer for replication of adenovirus DNA and remains covalently attached to the 5' end of each of the linear viral DNA strands throughout the infectious cycle, the pTP-deletion mutant virus is completely incapable of replication in the absence of complementation. To test the induction of inflammation by adenovirus vectors, we are collaborating with Dr. John Moorhead in the department of Immunology. We inject viruses subdermally in mouse ears, measuring the thickness of the ears immediately prior to and at 24 hr intervals after injection. Adenovirus-induced inflammation in mouse ears is accompanied by edema that correlates well with the level of inflammation (Moorhead et al., 1999; reference below). Edema measurement is sensitive and much more easily measured than inflammation. While Ad vector-induced inflammation is considered normal, the parental virus frequently causes asymptomatic infections, suggesting that Ad vector-induced inflammation may be caused by changes that are introduced into the virus and that Ad vectors can be made to be non-inflammatory. To test this, we constructed viruses containing alleles of the genes normally deleted in the construction of vectors and tested them for induction and inhibition of edema. We demonstrated that a virus containing most of the genes normally deleted in the construction of gene therapy vectors is not inflammatory and in fact, inhibits inflammation induced by the Ad capsid (Schaack et al., 2004; reference below). We are using the system that we have developed to analyze the contribution of various adenovirus gene products as well as foreign genes introduced into the vector to inflammation. A second area of interest concerns the retoviral vector-mediated transduction of the fetus in utero. In collaboration with Drs. Henry Galan, Frank Accurso, Ron Banks, and John Hobbins, we have tested models of in utero gene therapy in macaques and sheep using intra-amniotic introduction of murine retroviral vector producer cells. The producer cells survive for a limited time after injection and produce large amounts of virus vector. The vector is thus exposed to mucosal surfaces of the developing fetus. We have demonstrated that both macaque and sheep amniotic fluid inhibit transduction by vectors produced in a murine producer line and that macaque, but not sheep, amniotic fluid causes rapid destruction of the producer cells (Bennett et al., 2001 and Galan et al., 2002; references below). We plan to test the mechanisms by which amniotic fluid affects foreign cell survival and retroviral vector transducing activity.

 Biography
Research Interest :

My research interest for the last decade has been focused on the molecular biology, immunology, and the pathogenesis of negative-strand RNA viruses (Influenza A and B viruses, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Human Metapneumovirus, arenavirus, Thogotovirus, Ebola virus, Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever virus), positive-strand RNAviruses (Dengue virus, SARS coronavirus, Mouse Hepatitis virus); and DNA viruses (Vaccinia virus). I have extensive knowledge in the reverse genetics techniques for rescuing RNA and DNA viruses, pioneered the development of techniques and screening assays to identify viral-encoded interferon antagonist proteins, and established new molecular biology techniques to study highly pathogenic viruses, without the requirement of special biosafety conditions. My major contributions to the infectious diseases field, illustrated by more than 40 publications, include the development of new experimental systems to answer difficult questions in the mechanisms of virus-host interactions, including (among others):
1) Reverse genetics tools to genetically manipulate viruses, that I have used to examine virus-host interactions and development of vaccines.
2) Plasmid, virus and cellular based assays for the identification of virus-encoded IFN-antagonist proteins that I have used to undercover molecular mechanisms involved in viral pathogenesis, including the first description of an IFN antagonist protein in the arenavirus family and the multiple anti-IFN actions of influenza virus NS1.
3) Replication-deficient viruses to study highly pathogenic viruses, without the requirement of special biosafety conditions, for applications of safe vaccine development and discovery of new antivirals. Since my recent tenure-track appointment at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at University of Rochester–one of the 5 NIAID Centers of Excellence for Influenza Research and Surveillance (CEIRS) my research has focused on the interactions of influenza and arenavirus proteins with the host cell. We wish to uncover the molecular mechanisms associated with pathogenesis of these virus families and to design molecular tools that will allow us to discover novel cellular and viral targets to treat these viral infections in humans.

I am interested in exploring the mechanistic steps and cellular regulation of this repair process using different systems varying from bacteriophage to human. In particular, I am currently pursuing how presynaptic filament, a meta-stable reversible intermediate, is regulated in cells to ensure legitimate repair events at the correct cellular context.

 Biography
Research Interest :

My laboratory research focus is on mucosal immunology related to respiratory infections and zoonotic diseases of food animals. Mucosal delivery of potent vaccines is gaining increased attention to increase the breadth of cross-protective immunity. We are interested to understand mucosal immune responses in pigs and other species of food animals, following viral and bacterial infections and mucosal delivery of vaccines. At present we are making use of bacteria based candidate adjuvants to potentiate the efficacy of modified live virus and biodegradable nanoparticle-entrapped inactivated virus vaccines, administered by intranasal route, to protect against genetically variant porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus and influenza virus infections in pigs. We are also aimed to understand host-pathogen interactions, viral pathogenesis, and immune evasion mechanisms at mucosal sites of food animals. Recently, our laboratory has discovered invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cell in pigs, and iNKT cell plays a pivotal role in generation of cross-protective immunity against influenza in mice. We are interested to exploit iNKT cell-mediated adjuvanticity to influenza virus vaccines in a pig model.

We are currently developing infectious clone, which are capable to infect and replicate in vertebrate and invertebrate cells, to study the genomic determinants for virus replication and drugs screening or inhibitors to antagonize virus replication.
We are currently developing phage display methods to identify important antibody epitopes of important pathogens including influenza virus, dengue virus and canine distemper virus. This technique, compared to other developed methods such as monoclonal antibody or peptide scanning, is fast to screen epitopes on virus genome and is important for developing ELISA screening test and vaccine development.
We are also interested in understanding the molecular epidemiology of important zoonosis viral infection, including hepatitis E virus and norovirus.

 Biography
Research Interest :

Dr. Rockx’s research interests are focused on virus-host interactions, molecular pathogenic mechanisms, and the host responses following emerging high containment virus infection.  His research will focus on the development and characterization of in vivo and in vitro models of Hendra (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV) infection. HeV and NiV are two members of the genus Henipavirus (family Paramyxoviridea) that cause respiratory illness and encephalitis in humans and a variety of other mammals. The goal of these projects is to understand how these viruses infect the respiratory tract and spread to the central nervous system and to identify differences in routes of transmission and pathogenesis between different HeV and NiV strains.
A second area of interest is the development and testing of broadly protective therapeutics. The high mutation rate and heterogeneity of emerging zoonotic viruses is a major problem in developing therapeutics and therefore a key objective is the development of broadly cross-reactive reagents that will maximize the likelihood of protection against unknown future strain variants.
